A Challenge to Choose

Dan S. Shipley

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Armorites, in whose land ye dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Josh. 24:15).

Those who claim to be Christians need confronting with this choice encouraged by Joshua in the long ago. Not, of course, that allegiance to these same false gods is the problem, but there are other kinds of “masters” that are equally effective in stealing the affections of God’s people. In fact, these modern masters may be even more dangerous because men serve them while thinking themselves to be serving the true God. Does it seem strange that professed believers should be challenged to make a choice about serving God? It shouldn’t. When have the ranks of God’s followers NOT been infected with a Laodicean-like lethargy? (except, perhaps, in the earliest days of the church) — and, when more than NOW? Those who say and do not, the lukewarm, the vacillating, the unfaithful and undependable who call themselves Christians need to be challenged to MAKE UP THEIR MINDS ABOUT SERVING THE LORD!

Some Context for this Election (Cornerstone 11/06/2016)

Some Context For This Election

Thomas Keese

It may be true of every election, but it seems the case in this election it is unlike any other in our nation’s past. I know I am not alone in feeling gravely concerned for our nation’s future. There are so many things at stake as we approach November 8. No matter who is elected, we as Christians will continue to be confronted with major issues. 1st of all there is rampant immorality, fornication, adultery, lasciviousness and lovers of themselves, lovers of money, abortion, homosexuality, etc.… Which I doubt either candidate will deal with. This societies downward spiral started years ago and will likely continue for years to come. If God wanted to judge this nation based on its current moral state how can anyone argue it would not be deserved? No matter who is elected for most of us life will continue to go on without drastic changes. My goal for this article is to provide words of comfort and some context for this election cycle.

Seeing Through the Fire (Cornerstone 10/02/2016)

Seeing Through the Fire

Thomas Keese

Although it was more than 30 years ago, I still remember distinctly our Driver’s Ed teacher’s instructions about how to conquer our fear (among inexperienced drivers) of a bridge near Comfort, TX. Although there are few of them around anymore, this bridge was half a mile long and had two very narrow lanes framed by steel girders. His advice to us was to focus on the caution light on the other side of the bridge. It made no sense to us at the time, but when I actually took his advice, it worked. The principle, looking past our current circumstances to what the future holds also works.

Now I want to deal with my present circumstances. I have been dealing with excruciating pain a result of having MS for the last 28 years and the resulting immobility. In the midst of that pain there have been very few things that will bring me comfort for my mind to dwell on. When you find yourself in the midst of this type of adversity, my advice to you is to focus on the other side of the bridge, look through the fire. One of the things I consider is to look forward to the period of time after the pain medication has taken effect. I will recite to myself Paul’s words from Romans 8:18, “the sufferings of this present world are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

When the Shut-in Gets Out

“let us consider one another order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Hebrews 10:25

 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. -Psalm 122:1

 Such a simple concept, assembling together to worship. Yet, this simple concept is so integral to our success. Last Sunday was the first Sunday I was able to attend worship services in the past year.(7/5/15)  I will not even attempt to describe how much I am encouraged and my family is encouraged when I can attend. Being successful and remaining faithful to our Christian faith is so difficult to do alone. As individuals, we need support and encouragement that only comes from worshipping with others.
